Some people build fences to keep people out - and other people build fences to keep people in. Academy Award winner® Denzel Washington and Academy Award nominee® Viola Davis deliver the year’s most powerful performances in the film adaptation of August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Fences. Set in 1950s Pittsburgh, the film takes a passionate look at former Negro-league baseball player Troy Maxson (Washington) as he fights to provide for those he loves in a world that threatens to push him down. Washington’s directorial triumph pulses with the universal truths of love, forgiveness, and happiness despite what lies beyond your own fence.

    I saw this movie in March and I thought the story was interesting and that I studied black American history in my history classes in my old school, but was a bit hard to study. When I saw the movie, I firstly didn't understand what the actors were saying, and secondly I didn't know what was going on between and the actors and that their characters had hopes and dreams that didn't come true, because THIS - THIS - is Black America. Again, I thought the movie was good to watch. Seb Sandford
